On Monday, the British luxury automaker revealed the new Continental GT V8 and GT Convertible V8, which gives potential owners a (relatively) more fuel-efficient option compared to the burly 6.0-liter V-12 engine. In this case, Bentley pegs the V-8 as the mile-chewing, grand-touring option for the Continental GT and drivers may chew up to 500 miles on a tank. A stop/start system conserves fuel at stops, and the engine can deactivate four cylinders when the full potential of the V-8 isn't required...
